Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You wont find a more complete and beautifully illustrated introduction to this spectacular woodworking technique. Every instruction and image thoroughly demystifies the art of segmented turning and enables ordinary turners to master advanced skills and produce works with stunning geometrical and pictorial effects. From the initial planning to the final product, and from cutting accurate angles to setting up the tablesaw, every stage receives detailed attention. Wood-workers will soon appreciate how this method can overcome problems of wood movement and splitting, and enable them to use scraps and offcuts that would otherwise go to waste. The projects include mountain bowls and an ornamental birdhouse thats fun to make.
